Dear statalist, 
I have simplified my problem to a large extent, but essentially has to do
with using for-if-else commands in mata. I would like to create a matrix 'a'
whose values depend on an existing matrix 'b' (both are 1000X1 vectors to be
precise). I need to tell mata the dimension of a first. But all I get after
executing the commands below is the original vector 'a'. What could be the
possible error? I have tried adding and removing braces but it is not

for(i=1,i<1001,i++) {
if (b[i]==1){
else {a[i]=3

Thanks a lot
